Re: Ibanez RG3EX1 body question..

i think it is ash only because on mine the back of it looks to be ash. i compared it to the picture of ash on warmoth, and since the rg3ex has a translucent color you can see the wood grain on the back...it looks more like ash than it does basswood...i like the tone though

i have the honey burst one and im saving up to get new pickups. and change out the hardware. stock hardware is fine but i want to go with a whole gold hardware scheme, i think it would fit the honey burst nicely
